Luxembourg's air navigation administration selects Saab Sensis system

Luxembourg´s air navigation administration The Administration de la Navigation Aerienne said it has selected Swedish defense and security company Saab Sensis´ Advanced-Surface Movement Guidance and Control System (A-SMGCS) for the management of Luxembourg Airport´s runway and maneuvering areas.

The A-SMGCS will fuse multiple surveillance sources for a comprehensive view of the airport surface and to provide runway incursion alerts to the air traffic controllers, Saab Sensis said.

The Saab Sensis A-SMGCS will fuse surveillance data from Saab Sensis multilateration sensors, two Surface Movement Radars and VeeLo NextGen vehicle locators for the location and identification of all aircraft and vehicles operating on the airport´s surface.

Further, the surveillance data is integrated with Saab Sensis´ Safety Logic conflict detection and alerting algorithms to provide controllers with advanced visual and auditory warning of potential runway incursions. The data will be displayed at controller working positions using the NAVCANsuite integrated tower automation system.

Luxembourg Airport is a single runway airport that handles a diverse array of aircraft, from scheduled commercial traffic to general aviation flights. The airport experiences approximately 100,000 movements per year.

Saab Sensis A-SMGCS is in operation or being deployed to more than 40 of the busiest airports around the world, includingAustralia, Hong Kong, India, Israel, Saudi Arabia and the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration´s Airport Surface Detection Equipment, Model X (ASDE-X) program.
